Dear Customers of Unitymedia!
Finally, our office in Wülfrath (Germany) can now be reached from Unitymedia telephone network.
What was going on? Several times our customers informed us that they could not contact us by phone. We immediately followed their advice and called our office line through one or more of our mobile phones. We always got connected! Therefore we assumed that our lines were occupied for a short time at the moment of the customer's call.
It took some time before we realized that we were (and are) easily accessible from all national and international telephone networks and mobile networks, with the exception of Unitymedia landline connections. We are glad that this problem could finally be solved after a lot of correspondence.

Thank you very much Sipgate – Thank you Unitymedia!

Important News
Port Congestion - Manila Harbor
Surely you have noticed that the arrival dates of our containers change frequently. Maersk Line explains the changes of the transport plan as a result of delays in the transhipment ports, i.a. because of the congestion of the port of Manila. We have no influence on transit times by sea.

Other ports such as Subic or Cebu City are not an option for us as transit times to these ports are significantly longer from the outset.

We keep a close eye on the transport schedules of our shipments in order to keep you updated on any changes in the arrival times at Manila Harbor
Sea Freight
Shipping by ISO container is the thousandfold proven shipping method for Balikbayan consignments.
Due to straightforward handling we are able to ship at least two containers every month.

Air Freight

Choose air freight, if the transit time of ocean freight takes too long for your shipment. In light of the complex IATA rules we are proud to be able to offer this shipping method for your private Balikbayan shipments.

This service is mainly used by Philippine-based customers.
Moving Container
For Returning Residents ("Balikbayan") some particularly favorable regulations apply. To ensure that your relocation to the Philippines runs smoothly, you should observe however some important rules.
Die Inhaber"Is your wife a Filipina?" In the beginning we were often asked this question. Today most of our customers know, that we are a German family owned company with no personal connection to the Philippines. In 2007 we heard about the cultural concept "Balikbayan Box" and about its particular importance to Filipinos.

In 2009 we started our company in humble premises in Düsseldorf. Since 2010 we are based in Wülfrath. The new premises offer plenty of opportunity to grow, in order for us to continue adapting our services to our customers needs.

We have long since outgrown those humble beginnings. Today we are one of the leading Balikbayan consolidators that operate in Germany and beyond. On average we load a container with Balikbayan shipments every 2 weeks and ship Air cargo on a weekly basis.
